The Denuclearization of North Korea
Articles featured below are available to view via this landing page until 30 June 2020.
The United States and North Korea are engaged in an uncertain process aimed at finding a diplomatic resolution to the decades of conflict between their two nations, a history marked by partition, devastating war, crises, sanctions, and threats of force and threat of the use of nuclear war. This set of articles from Journal for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament, The Nonproliferation Review, Science & Global Security and Global Change, Peace & Security bring together analysis that can help inform scholarship, public debate and policy making on the unprecedented interlinked challenges of ending US-North Korean hostility, denuclearizing North Korea, and achieving peace on the Korean Peninsula.
The collection includes policy articles on understanding the strategic and political dynamics and processes at work as well as technical studies that shed light on nuclear weapons, nuclear weapon materials and ballistic missile programs in North Korea and the task of verifiable disarmament. Taken together they allow the development of reasonable short-term and longer-term goals with regard to denuclearization and verification measures that could be applied to nuclear weapons, weapon materials, ballistic missiles and key components while reflecting the actually existing trust between the US and DPRK and creating a process to increase this trust so as to permit future steps.
Journal for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament
